A compilation of quotations on a variety of issues by national, state and regional writers, well-known personalities, just plain everyday people and from various publications collected by the editors of THE ADVANCE.

Quotes for our Times:

Rebecca Downs, Web Editor at Townhall. com: Newt Gingrich has a take on why election night turned out to be such a disappointment.

In the end, though, Gingrich offered that perhaps President Joe Biden's strategy of going after his Republican opponents and threatening that democracy was on the line worked. 'Much as I think it's despicable,' Gingrich made clear about such a strategy, 'the Biden strategy of demonizing Republicans, and attacking Republicans, and defaming Republicans, I think did have an impact and will probably become the definition of the Democratic Party.'

Byron York, chief political correspondent for The Washington Examiner: A talk with Bill Barr about Russiagate, the FBI, and accountability.

Barr, who appointed special counsel John Durham, said that Durham's investigation has 'fleshed out the role that the Clinton campaign played' in the matter, and also 'the responsiveness of the FBI to this dirty trick.' Durham, Barr said, has exposed 'very troubling behavior by the FBI in essentially trying to explain away information that didn't fit into their apparently preformed narrative.'

Andy Puzder, previous chief executive officer of CKE Restaurants and an attorney: What midterm voting results tell us about the economy going forward.

First, with a majority in at least the House, Republicans can put an end to the Democrats’ passing the massive spending spree legislation that has been driving inflation and crushing American families (such as the bloated American Rescue Plan and the ironically named Inflation Reduction Act). That alone will do wonders for the business community, as it will eliminate the current uncertainty about what horribly misguided legislation Democrats will pass next.

Jonathan Turley, Shapiro professor of public Interest law at George Washington University and a practicing criminal defense attorney: GOP could investigate Hunter Biden and reveal DC’s influence-peddling cottage industry.

The disclosure of the corrupt practices linked to the Bidens will erode what little trust remains for the media. Figures like Bobulinski and the underlying emails were available to the media before the 2020 election. However, the media showed strikingly little interest in pursuing the facts of the influence peddling. Bobulinski and others will now presumably have a chance to be heard.

Obviously, other groups are also worried about what sunshine will expose in this scandal. That includes the FBI which appears to have scuttled or slowed early efforts to investigate the Biden dealings. It also includes Attorney General Merrick Garland, who steadfastly refused to appoint a special counsel despite overwhelming support for such an appointment.
